GPA for Junior Year Internship
-messed up freshman year horribly
-improved soph year
-current cumulative GPA: 2.6
-current major GPA in finance: 3.67
-attend good school
-interned Freshman year at Bloomberg L.P. (through connection)
-interned this year at small accounting firm
Going to be a junior this year and will be applying for serious internships for next summer that hopefully lead to a job when I graduate. Problem is that now my cumulative is not a 3.0 which strongly limits my opportunities. I am aware that companies will ask for my transcript after senior year but by the time I graduate I WILL have a 3.0 cumulative with a high major gpa, but at the moment it's not. I would not even bother with these high level internships but since I had a strong internship my freshman year and sophomore year I think that gives me an upper hand. I am also aware I don't have a shot at IB or something like that, I just want the best internship/job I can get.
A) on resume lie and put 3.0 cumulative with 3.67 major
-Risk them asking for transcript (Bloomberg did not and neither did this accounting firm)
B) on resume just put 3.67 major gpa
-Will get asked in interview what my cumulative is
C) on resume don't put a GPA and rely on previous internship exp. to get me in
Would greatly appreciate advice.
